Subject: Re: In favor of teaching "dot notation"

Maybe "coffee.price" (coffee has a price) example will allow me to rephrase my original objection wit more clarity. "Dot" can signify any "to one" relationship in my opinion. Adding connotations like "contains" or "belongs to" or even "has" can be placed on particular uses of the dot, but dot in general is best left free of those.
